    Did Clear Lake survive?

    Basically, everything east of BW8 south of 225 has no power, and i get no comnection on either of my phones (t mobile and att). Didnt go south of about Fairmont, so not sure how Clear Lake faired. All of the chemical plants are flaring like mad, so im guessing they lost power too.

    I drove down Red Bluff, and like literally 50% of the roadsigns and billboards were bent at the ground and now point out from the ground horizontally. I.saw a telephone pole that looked like it exploded at East, just south of 225. Also, around half of the stop lights in that part of town are dead, so it is traffic hell.

    It was 79 a week ago here in DFW. It's snowing now. And a rainy day. This weather sucks.

    Was in Tomball and Cypress today. Tons of rain. The HEB on Fry and Tuckerton has a couple spots where the parking lot dips slightly and water pools up. There were a couple small cars, including a pretty BMW, that got flooded. One was parked there so probably an unlucky employee, but the BMW clearly tried to drive through and got stuck. Fool.

    Was at work in Pasadena. Tried to tell everyone about the threat this afternoon no one listened. Then the power went out and managers yelled for everyone to get under a desk. I was pissed because had they listened they could have let us go early.

    Dismissal in PISD was a nightmare. No school tomorrow, and by assessing the damage from driving around, there’s no way schools can be up and running anytime this week, IMO.

    it missed my house by a few blocks here on the beltway, fairmont area .

    I was expecting Cypress Creek to be out of its banks. Street flooding was annoying, but drained quickly.
